* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Annie goes without her family to an apartment at sea, at a point in her life she strongly worries about her children (mainly Mary). There, she runs into an older woman who she confides to about her family problems, and the woman is very sympathetic and lifts Annie's spirits. When Annie leaves, the woman is suddenly disappeared and other people nearby have never heard of her. The woman is either an Angel that appeared to comfort Annie in a time of distress, ''or'' all in Annies imagination / a dream. [[note]]This storyline, which was only part of one episode, came across as a bit of a BigLippedAlligatorMoment, seeing that although characters frequently pray and talk to God, during the rest of the series God talking back to them, let alone Divine intervention, was never implied.[[/note]]

** An episode has Matt's BlackBestFriend and roommate, John, try to pair up him and Matt with a couple of women in the building and it's obvious that he'll be with the black one and Matt will be with the white one.

* AesopAmnesia: The kid characters seem to have a major dose of this trope, as they would always get in trouble in the next episode, despite having learned ''countless'' {{aesop}}s beforehand.

** Particularly drawn out for Mary, who keeps losing job after job due to negligence at the beginning of Season 5 without learning from it. InvokedTrope since at this point, the [[JessicaBiel actress]] and the producers / writers weren't getting along anymore and this storyline was introduced so she could be [[PutOnABus put on a bus]].

* VerySpecialEpisode: Pretty much every episode. Not particularly surprising considering series creator Brenda Hampton had previously written for ''Series/{{Blossom}}'' (itself notable for its frequent very special episodes).

* NeverMyFault: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in "Help" in which Matt blames everyone but himself for failing a chemistry test. Eventually, he is called out on it, and eventually asks his professor for [[TitleDrop help]] ([[DontExplainTheJoke get it?]]).

* EverybodyHasLotsOfSex: Averted for the most part, with most of the sex occurring between married couples. However, the show seems to drop the word "sex" in every episode, and makes you think that maybe someone paid the writers to use that word in every script in order to get a higher pay.



* HollywoodHeartAttack: Two aversions, with a WoobieOfTheWeek (in "Red Tape" - season 2) and Eric himself (start of season 4). In the case of the former, he actually had heartburn, whereas in Eric's case, his heart attack (caused by stress) is mostly played realistically, with the episode dropping hints along the way. Neither pass out during their heart attacks, nor portray them [[SubvertedTrope stereo]][[HollywoodHeartAttack typically]].

to:

* HollywoodHealing: Averted in Eric's case, since though comes home from the hospital in the episode after his heart attack, his problems continue through the remainder of the series, becoming a major plot point for season 11. Played straight in Roxanne's case, as her stab injury lasted about an episode, and only mentioned about once afterwards.
* HollywoodHeartAttack: Two aversions, A subversion and an aversion, with a WoobieOfTheWeek (in "Red Tape" - season 2) and Eric himself (start of season 4).4), respectively. In the case of the former, he actually had heartburn, whereas in Eric's case, his heart attack (caused by stress) is mostly played realistically, with the episode dropping hints along the way.
